SHANNON AIRPORT has become an official partner of the KPMG Women’s Irish Open which takes place in Newmarket-on-Fergus next month.
From September 22nd to 25th, the Women’s Irish Open will take place on Dromoland Castle’s 450-acre estate.
Top golfers from across Europe will descend upon the county for the anticipated return of the Ladies European Tour (“LET”) event, for the first time in Ireland since 2012. The premiere event will see 126 of the best professionals on the Ladies European Tour and leading Irish Amateurs take to the 18-hole Championship Course, including selected star players from the LPGA Money List.
CEO of Shannon Group, Mary Considine said they were delighted to become an official partner of the tournament and promote Shannon Airport to a wider audience. She noted that the Irish Open “is being held on our doorstep, at the acclaimed Dromoland Castle, providing an opportunity to highlight the fantastic golfing talent we have here in this country and promote Shannon Airport to a world-wide TV audience”.

We look forward to welcoming players and golf enthusiasts to the airport. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the calibre of golf courses here to overseas visitors and put Ireland top of mind as a premiere golfing destination”.
Over thirty private jets carrying some of the world’s top golfers landed at Shannon Airport to tee off in the star-studded, JP McManus Pro-Am in Adare Manor last month.
